George Schultz on Fareed Zakaria GPS

For those that missed it - I highly recommend today's GPS with guest George Schultz (4 minute mark to 24). Though he and I do not see things the same with respect to economic policy, his comments on diplomacy and geopolitics were spot on. I will be buying his new book, "Ideas and Action."

He was one of the good guys in the Reagan administration. His expert hand on the ship of State Department was very valuable to the Gipper. He sees things with a long view.

He offered many insightful thoughts on diplomacy and likened it to gardening. Our relationships with other nations can't be addressed in fits and starts. The relationships need constant care and maintenance. We cannot hope to go it alone in the 21st century.
